Dogs and trainers from Olympic Gentle Paws Therapy Dog Club will be available in the Port Angeles Library, 2210 S. Peabody St., from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. the first Thursday of every month, September through April, except January.
Dogs and trainers will visit the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave., from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. the second Wednesday of every month, September through May.
In Forks, Paws to Read takes place at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 30, Oct. 28 and Nov. 18.
Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills improve, according to the North Olympic Library System, which oversees the libraries.
“Reading to a dog or other pet provides a nonjudgmental audience and encourages children to read with confidence,” library staff said.
